Pallet rack add-on units allow you to increase shelving capacity by adding as many new base units as needed, with the same quality but at a lower cost.

Conveniently increase the capacity of your pallet racking with add-on units

Pallet rack add-on units come in various heights and depths to suit the original unit. Each unit consists of a single frame, as it is connected to the upright frame of the existing system, and two or three load levels depending on the height.

Unit includes:

  • 1 each – Assembled, blue bolted teardrop upright
  •  Pallet rack beam load levels
    • 2 each – Load levels for bays as high as 144”
    •  3 each – Load levels for bays 192” – 240” high

Things to consider when ordering:

  • Size and weight of the pallet
    • Standard GMA pallet size is 40” x 48”
  • Height clearances in order to lift the pallet load off the beam shelf level
  • Forklift height availability

Clearance between pallets and posts

Each pallet should be positioned 3" or 4" from any adjacent post or pallet, unless the bay has a 3 pallet width. In this case, a 5" clearance should be providen between pallets and 4" between post and pallet.


The distance from the top of the pallet load overhead is 4" to 6". The pallet must extend 3" beyond the frame depth on either side to ensure proper pallet support.
